Step 1.

Make your Chow Mein Sauce. Grab a bowl. Add 1 tbsp of cornflour and soy sauce. Mix them together until the cornflour is fully absorbed. Add the oyster sauce, vinegar and sugar. Mix everything together until you have a nice smooth sauce. Set aside.

Step 2.

Prep your veg - chop your mangetout, peppers and spring onions into matchsticks, and slice your garlic finely.

Step 3.

Cook your egg noodles. Once ready, drain and leave in a bowl of cold water, ready for the wok.

Step 4.

Dice up your chicken breasts into bite-size strips.

Step 5.

Crack your eggs into a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Beat everything together. Add 8 tablespoons of cornflour into another bowl. Dip the chicken in the egg and then in the flour.

Step 6.

Add the chicken to a wok with a splash of vegetable oil. Once all the chicken is cooked, set it aside. Remove the wok from the heat, wipe it down and place it back on the cooker.

Step 7.

Chow Mein cooking time. This is a quick process so you want everything prepared and ready by your wok.

Step 8.

Get the wok on a high heat. Add a splash of oil followed by your pepper, mangetout, carrots and spring onions. Fry for 4 minutes until they start to char and then add your garlic. Mix it in, add your chicken and your sauce. Toss everything together and cook for 2 minutes.

Step 9.
